Cherish


Neither stars in the sky nor drops in the sea,
Could be traded for happiness or the love of life,
For such a thing should be cherished like a rarity,
And should not be given up over struggle or strife,
Cradle and hold it in the place that love lies,
Keep it safe, keep it warm inside of your heart,
Capture it even the every tear that one cries,
For once inside you this feeling should never depart,
And tossing it away once is like going suddenly blind,
Without this emotion the world would be in eternal night,
And only sorrow at its loss would you then find,
Until you recover that tiny beacon of radiantly shining light,
Yes neither the great oceans below nor bright starts above,
Can ever amount to the feeling of happiness or love.
